Just thought I’d share this photo of Margo, my poupee, sporting a project that I’m currently working on.
Now I know it may look like I am creating a fabulous paper hat but I’m actually making my very own hat block!
A while back I promised that I would make my friend a hat, I’d shown her this hat that I had made with a lovely upturned brim the only problem was I didn’t have the brim block to make it again. For ages I was pondering how get round this ,until one morning I just woke up and had a eureka moment.
I covered the original hat with one layer of clingfilm and then two layers of masking tape to take a mould of the shape and am now building up the layers with paper mache to strengthen it. It’s a total experiment and I have no idea how it will turn out but I’m really excited to see if it will work. I’ll let you know how it goes
